Destination Cuba is a book of poems, micro-prose, short stories and photographs portraying the travel experiences of biking, trucking, busing, walking through the every day lives of Cubans. Meet the wonderful people of Cuba through the eyes of this Canadian world traveller as Grove makes his way with Cuban friend, Manuel, on a Pilgrimage to the Jose Martí Monument where this historic visionary fell to his death in battle freeing the Cuban people. Travel with them to find gas for the push-start car with no battery. Bicycle 60 miles out of your way with them in 35oc sun only to take their bicycles apart and stick them in the back of a 54 Ford so you arrive before dusk to the right Dos Rios. Arrive at the tiny town of La Boca with Richard and his wife Kim, parched and tired, looking for a bed, discovering the wonderful hospitality of yet another kindhearted Cuban family. This book is filled with fun stories that you can only experience by trusting the warmth and generosity of the Cuban people.

Reviews:

 

I read your book Destination Cuba. I really enjoyed it. It is a wonderful mix of poetry and prose. You brought me right into Cuba. I wish I had it before I went to an all inclusive holiday to Cuba with grandson two years ago. You show all sides of the country that tourists will never see.
